To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Rose Noire's initial blast is nuclear! It's a powerhouse oily vetiver to my nose, reminiscent of Habanita. A good 10-15 minutes of crazy. After that, Rose Noire dries to a vintage-like fragrance, just a bit powdery but airy & light. I love rose, I love iris, I love vanilla. Not surprisingly, I really like this. This is a PdT at 80%, and I get about 4-5 hours of wear before reapplication. Rose Noire wears close to the skin when dry. Of the perfumes I've tested, I'd say RN is a softer, rosier, less powdery Chantilly (vintage).
I've purchased 2 bottles. The first one from Amazon was long lasting. The second one (from another online seller) looked the same but just didn't smell the same. I'm not sure why!
